I watched it! While cleaning my entire apartment today. And it was a very interesting experience to watch, I think the directors might have been doing something really clever with how they presented the series. At least, I hope so. They were either being really clever or really really stupid. (for more Osho coverage, here is my article on their India years)
This is a little bit mean, it is Akshaye Khanna’s birthday today and I am reposting a post slamming his Dad. But it’s really just a coincidence, I’m hearing from more and more people who are watching the Netflix documentary on OSHO, and it seems like a good time to make my article on the India years before and after Oregon available and prominent.
By popular demand, and my own inclination, I am going to do a post on Osho! Otherwise known as “that weird religion that made Vinod Khanna run off to Oregon in the middle of his career.” Just to skip to the end for a second, it’s calmed down in the decades since and is now a kind of normal sort of meditation center. But it was very very odd for a while in the middle!
Vinod Khanna! I am conflicted about him. But it’s his 70th birthday, I will see if I can come up with a dozen reasons to love him.
